rules. if your best moment in the debate was about benghazi and opponent's best is about the economy, you have the opponent who got the better of you. >> richard, does this change anything for tuesday night, debate number two with the president and mitt romney? >> i think this is a pause. i think it stops the media narrative which got way out of control. frankly, it was way out of control before the debate, as if the election was over. it was way out of control after that first presidential debate saying it was over in the other direction. here we've got a very close election. it was close before. it will be close right up to election day. the vice president, i think, has leveled the media narrative to a point where we can actually see the two candidates going toe to toe next week. >> all right. richard wolffe, thanks for your time tonight on "the ed show." appreciate it. >> thank you. >> remember to answer tonight's question at the bottom of the screen. share your thoughts on twitter @edshow and on facebook. we want to know what you think. >>> last night paul ryan was confronted on
